You are NEVER alone in your troubles - there is someone who is always willing to lend a hand or a shoulder to you.
-L. Kimpton


I stand before you,
Covered with my sins.
I've tried reaching out,
But no-one will listen;
No-one will care.
And yet here you are,
Standing in front of me,
Willing to care;
Willing to help.
You reach out to me,
And remove my shirt.
For each article of clothing you remove,
You remove my sins as well.

I stand before you now,
Cleansed of my impurities.
You draw me close,
And rekindle my dead soul.
As you step back,
It glows a brilliant white.
I look at myself,
At what you've done,
And my heart is filled with joy;
A joy that I have never felt before.
Tears fall from my eyes -
The joy in my heart overflowing.
You offer me your hand and I take it,
Glad that I am now purified.


The author's comments:
This is about me and my slow coming to God. I haven't had Him in my life for, well, let's just say a really long time. Now that I've come to Him, I am happier and more positive than I have ever been. Please tell me what you think of it.

You can't just wish for happiness and magically receive it, you have to do something for yourself, to feel it.*-Me
